This is the chant for letter Ee:

Eggs in the pan /e/ /e/ /e/,

Eggs in the pan /e/ /e/ /e/, 

Eggs in the pan /e/ /e/ /e/,

Crack the egg like this /e/.

The motion for Ee is pretending to crack an egg open with both hands while saying Ee sound. 

At home ask your child what the letter of the week is, its sound and motion. Ask your child to share the chant with you as well.
